Mark Zuckerberg: My data was shared by Cambridge Analytica

Zuckerberg Mueller team interviewed Facebook staff

Graham initially had difficulty getting a straight answer. Apparently, it took something like the Cambridge Analytica scandal to draw people's attention to the question.

Today is the second day of congressional hearings for Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg.

Zuckerberg seemed to stumble over the question but said there are many companies that overlap Facebook's mission.

Still, he said, lawmakers need to be careful, noting that new rules or laws could hurt smaller businesses more than a behemoth like Facebook.

"You don't feel you have a monopoly?" We're going to do that, too.

That's because Zuckerberg doesn't view Facebook as a social media company. As for ads, it's for "the ad network that third-party websites and apps can run in order to help them make money", he said, adding that ad tracking can be turned off. Zuckerberg was reserved but not impenetrable.

"How can consumers have control over their data when Facebook does not have control over the data?" asked Rep. Frank Pallone of New Jersey, the ranking Democrat on the Energy and Commerce committee. There are discrepancies when replies of CA and Facebook were matched.

"This is censorship", she added. It's been reported that Facebook has as many as 29,000 data points for an average user.

During the hearing, Facebook shares made a noticeable jump, gaining 4.5 percent, adding $20 billion to its market cap - the biggest daily gain in nearly two years.

It's not an app for sharing cat pictures and political propaganda, although it's that for some people.

It is too late. "But at the same time, what Facebook gives us are kind of the same things your program gives us, which is the ability to bypass the liberal media, the mainstream media, and take our message directly to voters".

Due to the heavily influential hand FB has on its users and the world, Congress wanted answers from Zuckerberg about what he's doing to maintain users' privacy.

Majority Whip Steve Scalise asked Zuckerberg about remarks made Carol Davidsen on the 2012 presidential election. In two days of testimony, Zuckerberg was asked by at least four different lawmakers about the conservative duo and allegations Facebook censors conservative voices. That's scary, considering how important all of this ultimately is, as absurd as that seems.

Although Facebook may be forced to stop using tracking non-users in the European Union, that may not be the case in the U.S. and elsewhere, even if the company has promised to bring GDPR privacy controls to everyone.

"No, Congressman", Zuckerberg said. Click on a Like button and you can see the number on the page's counter increase by one; click on a Share button and a box opens up to let you post a link to your Facebook account. Advertisers pay Facebook to gain access to the attention of those users.
